Lotto winner : Marvin martinez found $1M ticket cleaning up after Sandy

Imagine finding a scratch ticket worth $1 million just blowing around in the wind.

That’s just what happened to one man from Long Island.

Marvin Rosales-Martinez picked up a wet ‘win for life’ scratch-off ticket while working as a landscaper one month after Superstorm Sandy hit.

He brought the ticket to lottery headquarters and found out he was the big winner.

According to a lottery spokesman, Lee Park, the investigation found no reason to believe that the ticket “wasn’t rightfully the property of Mr. Martinez. There was no report of theft or of a ticket being misplaced.”

Martinez chose to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum payment. He will receive a payment of $779,106 which will leave him with $515,612 after the required tax withholdings. He has said that he intends to share the prize money with his family.
